ANECDOTES OF PATRONAGE. (From the leader) [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 February 1857

ANECDOTES OF PATRONAGE. I ¿- 1 (From the leader) It may he fairly objected to popular erics that they are apt to degenerate into mere cant phrases, or else te become converted into stalking horses behind which political ddventltrerji conceal their interested purposes. The old lady Who held "Reïdrni" to be a removal of the tax upon sugar, may be a fair sample of the intelligence with which certain classes echo a party cry ; but it must be ad- mitted, nevertheless, that the thing was want- ed none the less because some of its supporters understood it impei'fectly, or not at all. Just so with this cry about Patronage, jobbery in higli plaëos; the rottenness of oar system, ne- potism, dnd the thodsand dtlicr forma which corruption assumes to work out its own Selfish ends; the cry may be a little vague, the no- tions of the objectors somewhat loose as to the best method of bringing about a new order of things, Mr. Layard may make a blunder or two in details, and theaRcfoira Association m...

BEAUMA[?]CHAIS' HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 February 1857

BEAUMARCHAIS4 HOUSE. Tho 14th July, 1780, Beaumarchais was occupied in building in front of, and very near to ' the Bastille, as if in defiance of this stronghold, a superb and charming dwelling. He had bought from the city, in 1786, all that portion of land which now forms the left line of the boulevard which bears His name, as you approach by tho Boulevard At. Martin taking the line opposite the Rue du Pas-de la-Mule, and continuing it to the Placo do la Bastille. It was a lengthened rectangular «pace, of about one acre in extent, in which ho proposed, like Sir Walter Scott, another literary builder, " to exercise his creative power upon his mother earth," and to build a house, which should have no more resem- blance to Other houses than " The Marriage of Figaro '' had to other comedies. He suc- ceeded, but not without expending a great sum of money. The architect Lcraoyne had at first given him a plan, vvhieh amounted to 300,000 francs. This primitive plan led bim, little by litt...

PAEUAMENTAB Y INTELLIGENCE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.-WEDNESDAY. The President took the chair at 4 o'clock. PETITIONS.

Member stated, that the sigaatures had been copied, but be held the original signature« in his hand. Mr KERMODE submitted, that the Petition could not be received, unless the original signatures svere attached ; he did not oppose the petition on its merits, but because reception was contrary to the recognized principle of the House, and if it was received, it would be in direct violation of it« rules.

THE MERCURY. $uulísl)rti üHonbaa, Mcbnetítra« # Jtíoau FRIDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 13, 1857. It is a melancholy duty that devolves upon the chronicler of public events, when he is compelled to record the dis- grace of his countty. Some such ieeling must have crossed the minds of the gen- tlemen in the íeporters gallery, as they jotted donn the piocecdings of the Assembly during the last two evenings. For they exhibited the last and lowest depths of inconsistent incompetency-of legislative debasement"-of incapacity to comprehend not merely the oidinary principles of political Government, but the commonest obligators of political honor. It was not the Ministry who were lowered-they had already earned all they could of that sort of renown but the Assembly : the representatives of the people in the teeth of whose wishes they acted ; the legislators of the country whose interests, and whose character they sacrificed and disgraced. We cannot reconcile their conduct with the ordinal y princip...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobart Town Mercury — 13 February 1857

MISCELLANEOUS. AN UPPER-CRUST BABY. - I have already spoken of the absurdities of court etiquette. Hero is an example, the most absurd of all, which came near being the cause of a revolu- tion in the palace. Certain rules, deemed com- patible with the imperial dignity, had been de- creed to govern the intercourse between the nurse and the young Prince. Among these rules was one which interdicted the nurse from kissing the child, or from calling him by any endearing titles, or from addressing him by any of those little abbreviations of bad grammar in so eommon me between fond mothers and their little pets. When the poor Burgundy nurse assumed her ditties', the responsibilities appeared so terrible in her eyes, tho distance between her and the nursling seemed so great that she willingly subscribed to these restric- tions, not dreaming she could ever be anything else to the little Prince than a kind of official "Fountain of State." But the nurse soon found that her charge was an ordina...
